Hi mamas,<br><br>
I took my first test today and it was negative (10dpo m/c). I'm still having headaches and nausea (11 days straight). I would expect both while waiting for HCG to fall, but not when it's done. Anyone else have this?<br><br>
Also, i'm really struggling as to when to TTC again. My body is already gearing up to ovulate (guess it didn't get the memo that I *just* m/ced, ugh). I REALLY want to try now, but would like to get stuff ready (vits, nutrition, herbs, etc). Yet, again, I don't care, I want to NOW. Geez, what's the best move?

It's totally up to you, mama. Caregivers may tell you to wait a certain amount of time before TTC after MC, but there's really no evidence that waiting more or less time makes a difference to the outcome of your next pregnancy.<br>
I have chosen to wait for one period to make dating easier but I see no reason to wait if you really want to be pregnant NOW.<br>
Hang in there, mama. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

I agree with what PP said. I had a m/c before conceiving DD. I waited one cycle and then got pregnant right away with DD. I know exactly how you feel about wanting a baby NOW<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"><br>
I don't remember having any nausea or headaches(to answer the first part of your question)

My OB recommended waiting two cycles. Based on a thread in this forum that posted the abstracts for several research papers that indicated there was no increased risk by not waiting, we're not actively preventing (and admittedly I'm keeping track of temps and CM and trying a little). I think it really is a personal decision based on how you feel physically and emotionally.<br><br>
As for vitamins and being prepared from that perspective: I'm still nursing and have never stopped taking a prenatal from my first pregnancy, and generally eat very healthy.<br><br>
I didn't have any headaches, although I was nauseated at the onset of heavy bleeding. It all went away though after ~18 hours.<br><br>
I hope you easily come to a decision that brings you peace, Mama....

Just tossing in my 2 cents:<br><br>
I can't speak to wnen to TTC after loss because I have a DH who doesn't want to TTC ever.<br><br>
But I did have mild nausea and headache after headache for almost a month after my mc last August. My cycle wasn't exactly right unitl October, either. I'm guessing that my hormones were all out of whack and that was what caused it (I get headaches and nausea with AF, too). I hope you feel better.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"><br><br>

Funny, I just posted something very similar. I just had a mc (bleeding started 17 days ago) and I am going to O in the next day or so. I just can't decide if I should go for it. We DTD on Sunday before I realized I might O. Now I want to keep trying.<br>
I had some repeat loss testing done, but the results haven't all come back yet. Most have and all that showed up was elevated anticardiolipins at 14. They like to see less than 10.<br><br>
I would hate to get pregnant again only to lose him, but I just can't stand letting a cycle go by after a year and a half. I sure wish they'd had the results back when they said they would. (Last week)
